Join MountainTrue for the 2016 Wild & Scenic Film Festival, featuring the year’s best short-form nature, wilderness and outdoor adventure films. This year's festival takes place on the beautiful grounds of Sierra Nevada’s Mills River Brewery under the open sky of an outdoor amphitheater carved into the side of a hill and located on the banks of the French Broad River. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Get there early to grab a drink, explore the gardens and snag a prime viewing spot!
Our Wild & Scenic festival is a selection of films from the annual festival held in Nevada City, CA which is now in its 14th year! The festival focuses on films which speak to the environmental concerns and celebrations of our planet.
This year's festival is presented by Sierra Nevada and sponsored by Mountain Xpress, Blue Ridge Energy Systems, BorgWarner Inc., Holly Spring Farm, JAG and Associates Construction and Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty.
